    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 10, 2008

    Despite some complaints, I'm still giving this a Must Read. This issue finally got me interested in this event and I'm honestly looking forward to the next issue, a feeling I haven't had for any of the Secret Invasion issues to date. Add the fact that Thor and Bucky Cap have basically existed in their own bubble universes over in their own books for the last few years and seeing them show up in this event seems to have way more impact than it should for these two characters.

    What else can I really say? I loved Secret Invasion #4. Here's to hoping the tie-ins do their job or else the wait for next month's installment is going to seem endless. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace/Paul B. McCoy/Shawn Hill Jul 10, 2008

    Shawn Hill: I think Times Square is definitely over. The Skrulls we know about for sure are Hank, Sue, Jarvis, Dum Dum and Spider-Woman. There are going to be other fronts to this battle, which definitely isn't over. There is a larger metaphor at work here: the Skrulls are angry because they believe humans gave their planet to Galactus. They feel they are morally and religiously right in taking ours in return. We're going to see just what that religion is, and just what, if any, restitution the Skrulls gain, before the end. Or, at least, we should. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jul 15, 2008

    Yu has improved. Although his characters continue to have the same cheeky and bony faces, his story telling and is actually clear. He also limits the amount of crosshatching which helps readers to read the pages. He almost feels like a major and serious comic book artist now. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jul 11, 2008

    Secret Invasion #4 was another pedestrian read. Secret Invasion continues to completely unimpress me and is by no means even one of the top 10 titles that Marvel is currently publishing. I continue to find Secret Invasion to be an slow, unoriginal, predictable and shallow story. Read Full Review
